People with body lifts

I was debating on getting dual exhaust for my truck and i didnt know how it would look since i have a 3" body lift. Also on my truck is a reese hitch so i was wondering if anyone had pics of their exhaust with a 3" body lift. Thanks

if u want the hitch to be higher im sure ur gunna have the modify the brackets to be shorter so it will bring it up.. or you might be able to buy a "hidden hitch" which i think has shorter mounting brackets, but dont hold me to it. what do u mean average out the distance? not quite sure what ur asking, but either way ur hitch is gunna be hanging down some. personally i'd go with the angle cut tip. just cuz i think it looks better, but a 3inx21in tip is a good size... thats the size i had on mine.. loved them

Nice pics of the exhausts, but my preference is the duals. In the pic of the one with the bumper down then up it looks like u raised the exhaust after u raised the bumper. Am I dreaming or did u?

yup, this is how goofy it looks with the exhaust hanging 3 inches lower, and is also the reason why I lifted my bumper. Since one of the exhaust pipes rusted out at the weld to the muffler, rather than getting it redone in the same location I lifted the rear bumper and got it redone so it would sit under the bumper at the new height:

I'm having my hitch raised 2.5" to compensate for the 3" bodylift. That's an option with the hitch.
